Global Health Connections Conference set for October in Denver
University of Colorado faculty, staff and students involved in global health care are invited to the Global Health Connections Conference, set for Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Auraria Campus in Denver.

CU faculty are among those presenting at the conference, which aims to raise awareness of current global health topics, including the world’s water and sanitation issues. Many Coloradans are working independently – through their schools, places of worship and other organizations – to improve health worldwide. This event gives them an opportunity to collaborate with one another.

The conference offers something for everyone from global health professionals to members of the community who are interested in global health. Sessions include presentations on issues such as gender and water, a panel on how to get involved in global health projects, and discussions led by Colorado-based global health community building projects.

Speakers include Andrew Romanoff from International Development Enterprises and others from local nonprofit organizations including Water for People and El Porvenir. Speakers from the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and Harvard University also will be presenting.

Online registration still is open at The first session starts at 9 a.m. and the conference continues until 4 p.m. Lunch is included.
